We will not back down or turn away from oppression but fight against it. We want the world to know our congregation takes a firm stand against racism in its many forms and communicate our commitment to the journey of ensuring that Black Lives Matter.
Rev. Lisa grew up Unitarian Universalist in Rochester, N.Y. from the age of 7. She has served congregations in New York, Michigan, and Minnesota for the past 26 years. She is passionate about building strong, multigenerational communities that make a difference in the world and is excited to join UUCM in shared ministry. Outside of congregational life, she is active in Unitarian Universalism teaching UU history, mentoring new ministers, and supporting congregations through times of change and growth. In her spare time, she loves to bake, garden, and travel. Rev. Lisa lives in Northeast Minneapolis with her husband and has two young-adult sons, Ben and Sam.
Weekly Minister's Message
Each Wednesday, Rev. Lisa shares a pastoral video message with the congregation about the state of the church and the state of our world. This message is available on our Facebook page, the UUCM Happenings news and announcements blog, and our Friday Update email newsletter (subscribe here).
For the rest of the summer, we will be hosting our services as usual in-person and online. We hope to see you soon!

"A Geography of the Spirit"
Led by Rev. Lisa Friedman
Whether we are from lakes, mountains, or prairies, we are shaped by the land where we are raised. Our connection to the earth is not just a rootedness in place, but a guide to our inner landscape. As we enter into the summer harvest, what can this geography teach us?
